  • The End is Near, and We’re OK with That

    on August 31 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    The end is near and there’s nothing we can do about it. For those not yet convinced here are the signs: season pass sales have begun at Colorado Ski Country resorts, sales on last season’s equipment are popping up, ski magazines have come out with their 2009-10 gear reviews, night time temperatures are dipping below 55 degrees, and even lower in the high country, and this weekend is Labor Day, the official unofficial end of summer.

    Copper Country Festival at Copper MountainAs is customary in Colorado Ski Country, we go out in style, and this year’s end of summer is no different.

The GEMS is its own unique little program within the Colorado Ski Country USA organization and the GEMS resorts have a somewhat cultish following.

    SunlightMaybe you’ve caught glimpses of them in the lift lines. Or perhaps you used one once and remember being surprised at feeling the weight of it around your neck. People always ask about it when they see one, “is that one of those passes that works at all the Colorado resorts?” And then they want to touch it and get a close up look at it.

    While they are available each year, there are limited numbers of them, and this year is no exception. Colorado Ski Country USA recently announced that the exclusive Colorado Ski Country Gold Pass is available for the 2009-10 ski season. The transferable pass, good for unlimited skiing and riding at member resorts, can be purchased for $2,750. Continue Reading

    It’s no secret that the ski industry has a careful eye on the issue of global warming, and a careful eye is probably an understatement. Global warming (or climate change, as it is less dramatically referred to) more than any other issue can have a devastating impact on our business.

    Ever since the TV was moved from the entrance vestibule, there is a big void at Colorado Ski Country USA, to say the least. Not just a physical void in that the giant screen which took up a lot of space is now gone, but there is an emotional void too.

    Every time someone came by the office and looked into the window at the screen, it was as if they were looking
